Backflow Prevention

Cross Connection Control (Backflow) Ordinance

The City of Boerne has a Cross Connection Control and Backflow Prevention Program. This program, as required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), was established to protect the public potable water distribution system from backflow of contaminants or pollutants through individual water service, fire service, and irrigation connections.

As of March 14, 2022, the City of Boerne has partnered with Vepo, LLC to allow for the online submission of test and maintenance reports. Moving forward, backflow testers will no longer be able to submit paper Backflow Prevention Assembly Test and Maintenance Reports directly to the City.

As part of this program, the City of Boerne requires backflow testers to be registered with the City before testing any backflow assemblies. Per City of Boerne Ordinance No. 2022-22, to be an approved backflow prevention assembly tester within the City, an individual must complete the tester registration form below and pay an annual, non-refundable tester registration fee of $50. Testers can mail a check, payable to the City of Boerne (Attn: Crystal Barrera), to 447 N. Main Street Boerne, Texas, 78006. 

Please discard any earlier versions of these forms as they will no longer be accepted. The changes to the forms were mandated by TCEQ so we can only accept these new forms at this time.

For questions, please contact Boerne Utilities at (830) 248-1538. Thank you for helping the City of Boerne maintain a Superior Water System.
